TAF underway, share price up

Written by 

Fonterra's TAF (trading among farmers) is underway.
And within minutes, the selling price of Fonterra share units rose 21% to $6.66.

 

Shareholder Philip van der Bijl rang a specially crafted bell to launch the share trading scheme at its new Darfield site at midday. About 100 farmers and Fonterra staff witnessed the launch.

Fonterra chairman John Wilson says it has taken time to launch TAF that will entrench 100% ownership and control.
"We have paced the introduction of changes that will give farmer shareholders more flexibility to maage their businesses and Fonterra shareholdings."

"We have taken our own time to reach this point in our history."
